Health Issues, Care, Hospitals, 24 Hours Pharmacies, etc.

Health Issues
– There are no health risks associated with traveling to the Czech Republic.
– The hygiene standards are reasonably high and the risk of infectious diseases (other than the seasonal flu) is low.
– No vaccinations or immunizations are required (or even recommended) unless coming from an infected area.
– The tapwater is safe to drink, although it may have an unpleasant odor due to chlorination; bottled spring water is available everywhere.
– As there are no international agreements in place between the US and the Czech Republic regarding free emergency medical care, we recommend that you purchase travel medical insurance prior to traveling.
– As an EU citizen, if you unexpectedly fall ill during a temporary stay in another EU country – whether on holiday, a business trip or studying abroad – you are entitled to any medical treatment that can’t wait until you get home. You have the same rights to health care as people insured in the country you are in.
– In the case of an emergency, you should call for an ambulance; the toll-free number is 155; try to have a Czech-speaking person assist you with the call.

Health Care
– In the event of an acute illness or accident foreign tourists can receive treatment in any hospital or first aid facility.
